Whose name is written?

Jesus Christ the LORD has four references in this passage to His name: “Faithful and True”, “A name written that no one knows but himself”, “The Word of God”, “King of Kings and Lord of Lords”.

When someone’s name or title is written like a tattoo on their thigh, you know that their credentials are not easily ignored.

His power and authority are visibly displayed by many crowns and a robe dipped in His own blood providing proof that he is mediator of a new and living way (Hebrews 10:20). – Teresa

Revelation 19:11-16 (ESV)

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. 13 He is clothed in a robe dipped in[b] blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14 And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 15 From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule[c] them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

Hebrews 10:19,20 (NIV)

19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain,that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

    Teresa, very good blog today, as is always. We’re just finishing up Rev. now, then starts another year of reading thru the Bible.
    Above I was reading “By Regal woman@TransamEagle”; last sentence, I noticed no August Elizabeth! 😊
